Do you sometimes feel as if you're the only one who messes up over and over again, who just can't seem to get this thing right? Well, according to James you're in good company, because he says "we ALL stumble in many ways" (James 3:2), and he's right!
That's not to say that any of us wants to ever remain in a less-than-mediocre life, but it IS to say that we're all in the same boat, even if we put on a fake shiny exterior to hide what's going on inside.
There truly is victory in Jesus, and He Himself is our hope and sufficiency in ALL things! Just remember, though, that you're not alone when it comes to wishing that you had your stuff more together than you do. This isn't defeat-ism. It's just reality. Again, Christ Himself is our only hope!
